i cannot wait to see "the closer" and the new med drama "heartland". TNT has two of the best shows this summer, in my opinion. though "hell's kitchen" is always a guilty pleasure. this year i am going to try & eat there somehow!

Girrly, there's actually going to be ANOTHER season of Entourage this summer! So it's finishing season 3 on Sunday, then coming back June 17 for the start of season 4.

Entourage is actually already on. How come you have it listed for June 17th? I'm generally not into SciFi, but for some reason I'm totally hooked on the 4400!! But the number one show I've been most excited for... BIG LOVE!!!! Will they get kicked out of their community? Even face jailtime?!?!

I cant ait to see Traveler, the sneak peak was really great. and ust the fact that they played Boston by Augustana in the preview made me a fan!

chancleta, Traveler is a drama about two friends who get implicated in a terrorist attack, probably by a third "friend" of theirs who betrayed them. ABC aired the first episode as a sneak peek after Grey's Anatomy a few weeks back. And megmarmor, I haven't seen any ads for it either (but then again, I usually end up fast-forwarding through them)

So Travler's coming back on? Were they planning on announcing/advertising for that? I haven't seen anything...
